Report: Charges filed against former Missouri center Zach Price

Leave a comment

Charges have been filed against former Missouri center Zach Price after the 6-foot-10 center was arrested two times in one day earlier in April. Price is facing tampering in the first degree, Boone County assistant prosecuting attorney Jessica Meredith said Thursday to the Columbia Daily Tribune.

Here’s the outlook for Price as Steve Walentik from the Columbia Daily Tribune went in-depth with Price’s details:

 The charge stems from Price allegedly defacing an automobile in an incident in which he was accused of ramming his car into one driven by former teammate Earnest Ross at least twice on April 2. It is a class C felony which carries a potential sentence of seven years in prison.

Meredith said the prosecutor’s office is still investigating and additional charges could be brought against Price, who was twice arrested on suspicion of assault in a pair of incidents with Ross between the afternoon of April 2 and the early morning hours of April 3.

After the incidents and multiple arrests, Ross went for an order of protection against Price but that was later dismissed. Price is already facing a class C felony and additional charges could be filed, so this isn’t a promising start for him in this case.

Price was dismissed from Missouri on April 10th and head coach Frank Haith later left for Tulsa.

Nevada coach to honor his father, Flip Saunders with unique warmup routine

Leave a comment

Nevada will be honoring Flip Saunders and Bill Musselman with a pregame warm-up routine they’ve been practicing for the past couple of weeks.

Bill is the father of Eric Musselman, Nevada’s head coach. He was coaching the Minnesota Golden Gophers that included Flip as a player when they used this warmup routine in the 1970s.

“We start almost every practice with this pregame routine,” Eric Musselman said. “It takes some time to get it down and we will perform it live for the first time before the Portland State home game at Lawlor Events Center on Nov. 25.”

The routine, which Eric found in a diagram after his father passed away, is similar to something you’d see the Harlem Globetrotters do.

New podcast!

In today’s episode, we talk quite a bit about Ben Simmons. How good of a prospect is he? Why do people insist on calling him overrated? Does LSU actually have a shot at missing the NCAA tournament?

We also talk about Indiana’s disappointing showing in Maui, just how good Vanderbilt and Kansas have looked, Marquette’s ability to bounce back and whether or not we should be concerned about North Carolina and Maryland.

Oh, and Thanksgiving sides.

Do people really call stuffing ‘dressing’?
